Treatment of any phobias according to the DSM is as follows:

cognitive behavior therapies such as exposure. They can be graduated and structured.

Relaxation techniques used to be implemented/practiced more, but now often not a part of empirically supported treatments

the most effective way is through exposure treatments, as this reverses the avoidance of and reduction of anxiety-provoking stimuli (in this case spiders).

(All from my psychology notes)
Hope this helps!
